* TheHero: Of the first game where he is charged by the BigGood with riding the Holy Land of abusive merchants, tyrannical rulers, etc. It is telling that Desmond gains synch by rescuing civilians but not killing Templars, implying that the former brings him closer to Altaïr than the latter. Of course, he's also an antihero given that he's a ProfessionalKiller.

-->'''Jubair:''' You turn to them for answers and salvation. You rely more upon them than yourselves. This makes you weak and stupid. You trust in words, drops of ink. Do you ever stop to think of who put them there? Or why? No, you simply accept their words without question, and what if those words speak falsely, as they often do?
-->'''Jubair:''' Is it not ancient scrolls that inspire the Crusaders? That fill Salāḥ ad-Dīn and his men with a sense of righteous fury? Their texts endanger others, bring death in their wake. I too, was making a small sacrifice.
